Details on why Microsoft dropped a Kinect processor

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2462 days, 22 hours, 13 minutes ago
Thursday, September 30, 2010 7:10:09 AM GMT
The Kinect's innards used to contain a standalone processor. In January they said they ditched it and now we have a bit more information on why. Before the removal of the processor, the Kinect used it for number crunching. Now, with the removal, the Xbox 360's processing does all the work. Kinect's main man at Microsoft, Kudo Tsunoda, explains: "We didn't know how much processing Kinect was going to take at the start of development," Tsunoda told the new Xbox World 360. (more)

Konami has announced their next 3D racing arcade game, Road Fighters. It will come to the arcade in a cabinet that has a steering wheel and a seat with drop-down 3D glasses. You're free to switch between 2D and 3D with a button press, but what's the fun of playing this game if you're not going to go all the way. Spectators won't be left out of the action as the rear of the seat is also equipped with a second 3D lens set to they can watch on. (more)

Thursday, September 30, 2010 7:08:05 AM GMT
The internet has changed a lot of things. Whether it's the social networking craze that allows people to stay in touch with relatives in Timbuktu, or the fact that people like me can make a living writing for a tech website and not even have to leave the house, it's safe to say the internet has made a significant impact on many of our lives.

RIM: We're Replacing Our OS with One from QNX

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2462 days, 22 hours, 31 minutes ago
Thursday, September 30, 2010 6:52:26 AM GMT
This week Research in Motion debuted its much rumored PlayBook tablet. Before it was unveiled, one of the bigger rumors was that the BlackBerry maker would pass on the opportunity to use a version of its BlackBerry OS optimized for tablets and instead opt for a complete new OS from QNX. At the time it seemed unlikely as sources also said RIM would ditch BlackBerry OS and eventually put the new QNX operating system on all of its devices. It just didn't make sense to those who knew RIM had just finished a ... (more)

Yeah, Super Mario Bros. was kind of a big deal, and we can't fault Nintendo for wanting to celebrate: September 13th marked the 25th anniversary of the game's launch, and Nintendo is pushing out special editions of the DSi and DSi XL (pictured) to celebrate, along with some pretty sweet swag. We mentioned the handhelds this morning, but now we've got a couple pictures -- way to play it subdued, Nintendo. (more)

When we heard that the Motorola Droid 2 was the latest Android handset to nab the ancient magic of frequency modulated audio using Droid X files, we just had to give it a try, and sure enough, if you've got root, the FM Radio app can be yours with a quick download and just a few lines of code.

Thursday, September 30, 2010 6:49:43 AM GMT
Shortly before Kinect hits store shelves on November 4th, Microsoft plans on rolling out the Fall Update to Xbox Live -- even sooner for those who signed up for the preview program. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise, really: even without the numerous leaks, the fall update is a longstanding tradition for the almost five-year-old console, and the company devoted a large chunk of its E3 2010 presentation to talk about the biggest additions.

Rumor: PS3 hacked into real service mode

This could be fake, but some pictures coming out of the PS3 hacking community look like they've accessed a real PS3 service mode. In the above screenshot it looks like there's an on-screen overlay that says "FactoryService Mode." There's still no word on what this does, but it may be possible to do PS3 firmware downgrades and such (more)

The Kane & Lynch movie needs a new director

To me, Kane & Lynch seems like an ideal candidate for the whole game-to-movie conversion process. You strip out the technical and mechanical issues, and hopefully, hopefully, you have an interesting story. Jamie Foxx and Bruce Willis are still on board, after all. (more)

Fox News has run an extended feature on EA's decision to allow gamers to play as the Taliban in the multiplayer mode of Medal Of Honor. The network's Fox & Friends presenter described the game as "allowing players to play as The Taliban against the US, with the objective of gunning down American troops." He then passed over to Karen Meredith, a Gold Star Mom whose son died in the Iraq War. She commented: "War is not a game, period. The fact that they've already done games about World War II... that... (more)
